Let’s see, she’s used to pretending to be something she’s not, so for today’s encore, it’s time to play the victim.
Elizabeth Warren lashed out at U.S. Sen. Scott Brown today – saying the Republican incumbent should apologize for insinuating that her parents weren’t truthful when they told her about her Native American heritage.
Brown told reporters, “My mom and dad have told me a lot of things, too, but it’s not accurate.”
Warren, who said she learned of her roots through “family lore” but has been unable to provide documentation of her heritage, blasted Brown in a statement.
“Scott Brown’s comments about my parents are totally out of line. I resent him questioning their honesty. My mother and father are not here to defend themselves and should be off limits. Don and Pauline Herring are not fair game and Scott Brown should apologize,” she wrote.
Oh my, the feigned indignation is palpable. Why, it’s almost as if Brown is insinuating her parents are pathological liars instead of her.
Brown’s people shot back:
“This is the second time Elizabeth Warren has made this pathetic and baseless accusation in an attempt to escape personal responsibility for spending five weeks misleading the press and the public,” said Brown spokesman Colin Reed. “With so many new questions piling up, she would be wise to come clean, stop the stonewalling and tell the truth, rather than making up frivolous and false attacks against Scott Brown.”
She can’t come clean. Once she does her public and professional life are in ruins. We’re pretty much there, but she’s clinging to hope. It’s all she’s got.
In the meantime, one House Democrat calls her implosion water torture. Wait, did Cherokees ever use that?
Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren (D) has badly botched questions surrounding her Native American heritage and the issue is damaging her campaign, Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) told The Hill.
“There has to be an answer for this at some point, something that’s full and comprehensive and has some closure to it as opposed to the way it’s been dragged out — like water torture,” Lynch said late Thursday afternoon.
Asked if Warren and her campaign should put out all the information to put the story to bed, Lynch said “they probably should have done that probably four weeks ago.”
